Top Music Videos for July 2014.
A round-up of our favourite music videos posted over the month of July!
Zaki Ibrahim - Draw the Line
Filmed in a coloured neighborhood in the Cape Flats area of Cape Town, the video follows a day in the life of a young girl in an area and community that was and still is marred by the harsh racial and social policies of apartheid, but is also rich in culture and history. The video captures a myriad of emotions and paints a portrait of a girl caught between two worlds - that of her immediate surroundings, and that of her imagination.
Waje ft Tiwa Savage - Onye
Two Nigerian divas team up for a comedic video with a hilarious storyline. And who ever said you can’t wair heels and a bustier whilst pounding yam the traditional way?
M.anifest & HHP - Jigah
Two hip-hop heavyweights representing Ghana and South Africa team up for a huge collaboration, shot on the streets of Jozi, with both rappers looking like pan-African comrades.
Ace - Jeje
Combining the old and the new, musically and visually speaking, the video for ‘Jeje’ takes us through re-imagined hip and colourful party scenes of previous decades.
Y’AKOTO - Perfect Timing
German-Ghanaian artist Y’AKOTO takes us on a colourful tour of Accra from the back of a van taxi and on a road bike along with the most stylish biker boys and girls we’ve ever seen.
Moko - Your Love
Voguing, pom-pom pigtails, a killer 90s dance music sound and an equally amazing voice will make you want to surrendor more than your love to this lovely lady.
SZA - Julia / (Tender)
Spotted SZA wearing a Bògòlanfini print jacket in this video, amongst other beautiful prints, patterns and fabulous bold jewelry.
Purple Ferdinand - Wasn’t Taught to Love
A raw and stripped down music video for a song that’s just as emotive and full of depth. Lots of lovely variations of purple.
Tunde Olaniran - Critical
With direction from Kevin Eckert, Olaniran takes us on a multimedia and multiple layered visual journey that sees the singer play with shadows, various light hues, illustration, animation, and fashion.
Just A Band - Probably For Lovers
For their catchy and uber sweet love song taken off their Sorry for the Delay album, Just A Band put together a video that consists of their friends and fans from around the world singing along to the song in the cutest music video montage.
